Kyle Zimmer throws scoreless inning as opener on Saturday

Kansas City Royals pitcher Kyle Zimmer allowed two walks while striking out two across one inning during Saturday’s 8-0 loss to the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmer was used as the opener for the second time in the last three games and struck out two over a scoreless frame. He was replaced by Kris Bubic in the second inning. Zimmer has been solid in 2021, owning a 2.40 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 30 strikeouts over 30 innings. The 29-year-old will continue to be used as an opener and reliever for the Royals, but his fantasy value is limited to deep-league formats.
